Yin and Yang.

In Chinese philosphy they believe that a healthy mind and body is dependent on the balance of the yin and yang. Whether it occurs in a meal, in a person, or in nature and all diseases result from imbalances. They also believe, when preparing or ordering food, keep balance and variety close in mind. Don't have too much of one category. Eating only certain groups such as meats, oils, starches, or even vegetables, fruits, and legumes cannot provide the various nutrients needed for a balanced healthy body. If you notice most people seem to indulge in one group and don't try to eat smaller amounts of each group to get all the benefits that each one represents.
In accordance with yin and yang, we can eat the foods we want. We just need to balance them with a healthier diet.
Find your balance!
